Gregorio VILLARREAL1328 was born (date unknown). Parents: Juan Bautista VILLARREAL and Ana Josefa DE LEON.


Gregorio VILLARREAL Garza was born about 1818 in Rancho "El Tepeguaje", Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.2849,3396,3939 His age is given as 42 in the 1860 Census, indicating he was born between August 6, 1817 and August 5, 1818. The 1880 Census gave his age as 56, indicating he was born between June 6, 1823 and June 5, 1824. I am now assuming that he was born about 1818. He died on 4 January 1882 at the age of 64 in La Grulla, Starr County, TX, USA. According to Antonio Molina, he died in La Grulla but his wish was that he be buried in San Antonio de Bejar, and his children complied with his wishes by transporting his body to San Antonio and burying him at the San Fernando cemetery. Another family member recalled hearing stories that Gregorio actually was in San Antonio when he died, and that was the reason he was buried there. The one thing consistent in both stories is that he was buried in San Antonio. Circumstantial evidence suggests that he actually died in San Antonio, and was buried there the day after he died.

I did come across an image of an obituary notice for a Gregorio Villarreal in the San Antonio Express-News for the week of January 7, 1882. It stated that he died from intermittent fever after an operation for prostratic calenli [calculi ?]. I have yet to find the actually death certificate. He was buried.2738,3940 The Catholic Chancery Archives, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Texas, lists a Gregorio Villarreal, age 66 years, born in Mexico, and buried on January 5, 1882 in the San Fernando Church cemetery. This burial date is one day after my great-great-grandfather Gregorio Villarreal died, and the given age of 66 years is in good approximation with the age I had estimated from Census records. This appears to validate the oral history that my great-great-grandfather was buried in San Antonio, but also leads to the conclusion that he was actually in San Antonio when he died. I initially concluded that Gregorio Villarreal was the son of Ignacio Villarreal and Manuela Garza, even though I had no documents to verify that fact. I based my conclusion on two separate sources of oral history. First, Antonia Molina of La Grulla related to me that she recalled her mother saying that Gregorio and Yrinea Villarreal were brother and sister. Second, my aunt Odilia Longoria showed me a note from her mother Ana Treviño showing that the parents of Gregorio were Ignacio Villarreal and Manuela Garza. From the Inventory of Gregorio's estate I knew that Gregorio's mother was a Garza, so all the evidence seemed to indicate that Gregorio was indeed the son of Ignacio Villarreal and Manuela Garza. It was very gratifying to me, and a testament to my family's oral history, that my conclusion was verified on January 24, 2004, when I received a copy of a baptismal record located by Irma Longoria Cavazos which stated that Gregorio was indeed the son of Ignacio Villarreal and Manuela Garza.

On May 16, 1872, Gregorio Villarreal purchased from Mauricia A. Belden, the widow of Frederick (Federico) Belden, all of the "La Encantada" grant for $3000.00. In the description of the property, the southwest corner was placed at an original land mark called El Cuerudo; then proceeded North 1 degree west for 12565 varas to a large rock for the northwest corner, designated as San Pablo del Granjenito and being near the laguna Retamoza; thence East 10325 varas to the northeast corner, a large rock designated as land mark Layadero (also being the northwest corner of "Encino del Pozo"); thence South 12500 varas to the land mark called San Antonio for the southeast corner; thence west 10000 varas to the place of beginning.

La Encantada comprised 5 leagues, or sitios, of land and had originally been granted by Mexico to Jose Manuel Chapa on June 26, 1834. Jose Manuel Chapa, a citizen of Camargo, became discouraged "due to damage to cultivation from daily incursions by savage tribes" and, on April 10, 1837, sold La Encantada to Antonio Martinez Chapa, citizen of Matamoros, for 300 pesos. Only 12 days later on April 22, Antonio Martinez Chapa combined La Encantada with the Encino del Pozo grant (which he apparently purchased from Luciano Chapa on the same date that he purchased La Encantada from his brother, Jose Manuel Chapa) and sold both of them to French Strother, a citizen of Matamoros, for 932 pesos. French Strother held the properties for less than a year, and then, on March 15, 1838, sold La Encantada and Encino del Pozo to Federico Belden for 500 pesos, only about half of what he had paid just 11 months earlier. Thirty four years later, Federico's widow sold La Encantada to Gregorio Villarreal.

Not long after purchasing La Encantada, Gregorio began selling one-league parcels of land to friends and relatives. The 5 leagues of La Encantada were laid out by dividing the northern and southern boundaries into 5 equal lengths, creating long rectangles with the longer sides oriented north-south. Gregorio first sold the westernmost league of land to Eligio Garcia on a date I have not yet determined. Next, on September 25, 1873, Gregorio sold second most westerly league of La Encantada to Manuel Perez and the third most westerly league to Juan Longoria. Beginning from the westernmost boundary of La Encantada, I believe the Manuel Perez league was the second league toward the east, followed by the Juan Longoria league. At a subsequent date which I have not yet determined, Gregorio apparently sold or conveyed the fourth most westly league of land to his brother Sabas Villarreal. This left Gregorio owning only the last remaining league of land in La Encantada, that being the most easterly league which adjoined the western boundary of the Encino del Pozo land grant.

The Inventory and Partition of the Estate of Gregorio Villarreal, dated Sept. 15, 1882, indicated his estate consisted of the following:
2 houses, the first "de madera cosina y mitad de solar y ancan cantiquo", and the
second "paredes de ladrillo y techo de madera con un jacal techo pajisos"
5 sitios, known as "La Encantada" (about 22,142 acres)
1 sitio, known as "El Panal" (about 4428.4 acres)
3 cordeles in the upper part of Porcion 93 (about 1328.52 acres)
3 cordeles in the lower part of Porcion 93 (about 1328.52 acres)
52 varas in the Porcion known as "Anacuas" (about 460.55 acres)
1 labor "del cupo de (7) Almudez de sembradura" (about 177.14 acres)
1 "potrerito que sirve para pastiar vestias y bueyes"
1 "solar, uviendo en la villa del Rancho que sirve para encerrar maiz"
494 head of cattle ("ganado baenno")
232 horses and mules ("ganado caballar")
21 hogs
5368 head of sheep and goats ("ganado menor")
24 loads ("cargas") of corn
Various household pieces made of iron, wood and stone
Cash in the amount of $1486.56 being held by Don Eligio Garcia
Cash in the amount of $27.50 being held by Don Nepomuceno Garza
Cash in the amount of $500.00 being held by Francisco P. Juarez
Cash in the amount of $800 being held by Gregorio's brothers, Antonio and Hilario
(This $800 was given to the 4 youngest children, Celso, Romana, Transito, and
Octaviana)
There appears to be an inconsistency in the Inventory, as a deed dated September 25, 1873, indicates that Gregorio had sold 2 sitios of land in La Encantada on that date, and he apparently sold 2 other sitios prior to his death (the deed records in Brooks County should verify these but I have not yet made an effort to locate those deed records). The probable explanation is that by this time the La Encantada tract and the Encino del Pozo tract, were being treated as one, probably because of their common ownership, by the Texas General Land Office, and the combined tracts were referred to simply as La Encantada by Gregorio Villarreal and his descendants. It is a fact that Gregorio's descendants did inherit lands that were in the original Encino del Pozo land grant. This supports my conclusion that the 5 sitios of land mentioned in the Inventory were the most easterly league in the original La Encantada land grant and all of the 4 leagues in the original Encino del Pozo land grant.

Spouse: Maria Ysidora RAMIREZ. Maria Ysidora RAMIREZ and Gregorio VILLARREAL Garza3397 were married on 2 July 1848 in Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.2253,3398 The 1880 Census indicated that two of Gregorio's grandchildren were at his house on June 5, 1880, when the census was taken. They were 11 year old Anita and 6 year old Enrique, who is noted as having small pox. Anita and Enrique were children either of Gregorio's eldest son Manuel or of his eldest daughter Gabriela. Gabriela was also present in Gregorio's house when the 1880 census was taken; she was 27 years old at the time and thus Anita and Enrique could have been her children.
